While visiting his niece, elderly Uncle Geezer had a serious stroke.

The niece drove wildly to get him to the emergency room.

After what seemed like a very long wait, the E. R. doctor appeared, wearing his scrubs and a long face.

Sadly, he said, “I’m afraid that your uncle’s brain is dead, but his heart is still beating.”

“Oh, dear,” cried the niece, her hands clasped against her cheeks with shock, “We’ve never had a Democrat in the family before.”

It was election time and a politician decided to go out to the local reservation and try to get the Native American vote. They were all assembled in the Council Hall to hear the speech. The politician had worked up to his finale, and the crowd was getting more and more excited. “I promise better education opportunities for Native Americans!”

The crowd went wild, shouting “Hoya! Hoya!” The politician was a bit puzzled by the native word, but was encouraged by their enthusiasm. “I promise gambling reforms to allow a Casino on the Reservation!”

“Hoya! Hoya!” cried the crowd, stomping their feet.

“I promise more social reforms and job opportunities for Native Americans!” The crowd reached a frenzied pitch shouting “Hoya! Hoya! Hoya!”

After the speech, the Politician was touring the Reservation, and saw a tremendous herd of cattle. Since he was raised on a ranch, and knew a bit about cattle, he asked the Chief if he could get closer to take a look at the cattle.

“Sure,” the Chief said, “but be careful not to step in the hoya.”

A woman walked into a bridal shop and told the sales clerk that she was looking for a wedding gown for her fourth wedding.

“Well,” replied the sales clerk, “exactly what type of dress are you looking for?”

The bride to be said, “A long, frilly white dress with a veil.”

The sales clerk didn’t know quite what to say but finally said, “Frankly, madam, gowns of that nature are considered more appropriate for brides who are being married the first time…for those who are a bit more innocent, if you know what I mean?”

“Well”, replied the customer, more than a little put out, “I can assure you that I am as innocent as the rest of them. Believe it or not, despite all my marriages, I remain as innocent as any first-time bride.”

“You see, my first husband was so excited about our wedding he died as we were checking into our hotel.

My second husband and I got into a terrible fight in the limo on our way to the reception and we have not spoken since. We had that wedding annulled immediately.”

“What about your third husband?” asked the sales clerk.

“Well”, said the woman, “he was a REPUBLICAN and every night for four years he just sat on the edge of the bed and told me how good it was going to be.”

There is one day until the election, an election that will decide the next President of the United States.

During his audience with the Queen of England, John Kerry asked, “Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Can you give me any tips?”

“Well,” the Queen said, “the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people.”

Kerry frowns. “But how do I know the people around me are really intelligent?”

The Queen took a sip of tea and said, “Oh, that’s easy. You just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle.” The Queen pushed a button on the intercom and said, “Please ask Tony Blair to join us.”

Tony Blair entered and asked, “Yes, my Queen?” She smiled and said, “Tony please answer this question. Your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother nor your sister. Who is it?” Without a pause he answered, “That would be me.” “Very good,” she said.

When Kerry returned home he asked John Edwards, his vice presidential choice, the same question. “John, answer this for me. Your mother and your father have a child. It is not your brother nor your sister. Who is it?”

“I’m not sure,” Edwards replied. “Let me get back to you on that one.” Edwards asked all his advisors, but none could give him an answer. Finally, in the men’s room, he recognized Colin Powell’s shoes in the next stall. He shouts, “Colin, can you answer this question for me? Your mother and father have a child and it’s not your brother nor your sister. Who is it?” Colin yells back, “That’s easy. It’s me!” Edwards smiles, and says, “Thanks!”

Edwards rushed back to speak with Kerry. “Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It’s Colin Powell.” Kerry got up, stomped over to Edwards and angrily yelled into his face, “No, you idiot! It’s Tony Blair!”


Once upon a time, long, long ago there was a presidential election that was too close to call. Neither the Republican presidential candidate nor the Democratic presidential candidate had enough votes to win the election.

Therefore, it was decided that there should be an ice fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the final winner. There was much talk about ballot recounting, court challenges, etc., but a week long ice fishing competition seemed the (manly) way to settle things. The candidate that catches the most fish at the end of the week wins.

After a lot of back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest would take place on a remote and cold lake in Wisconsin. There were to be no observers present, and both men were to be sent out separately on this remote lake and return daily with their catch for counting and verification.

At the end of the first day, George W. returns to the starting line and he has 10 fish. Soon, Kerry returns and has zero fish. Well, everyone assumes he is just having another bad hair day or something and hopefully, he will catch up the next day. At the end of the 2nd day George W. comes in with 20 fish and Kerry comes in again with none.

That evening, Bill Clinton gets together secretly with Kerry and says, “I think George W. is a lowlife cheatin’ son-of-a-gun. I want you to go out tomorrow and don’t even bother with fishing. Just spy on him and see if he is cheating in any way.”

The next night (after George W. comes back with 50 fish), Clinton says to Kerry, “Well, what about it? Is George W. cheatin’?'”

“He sure is, Bill, he’s cutting holes in the ice.”
